"WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (Reuters) - California could reconsider closing its last nuclear power plant as public support has grown for the low-carbon energy source, U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm told Reuters on Tuesday.

She said she was willing to eventually talk with state officials about keeping the Diablo Canyon plant open.

The Biden administration has expressed support for the nuclear power industry as crucial to its goal of decarbonizing the U.S. electrical grid by 2035.

'California has been very bullish on zero-carbon emission energy,' Granholm said in a wide-ranging interview to be broadcast next week at the Reuters Events conference Energy Transition North America 2021, where leaders will discuss the move to clean energy.

'It may be something that they decide to take a look at, given that I think there is a change underfoot about the opinion that people may have about nuclear.'"
